Vandals destroy trees, nursery donates 15 to replace at Vet’s Memorial

In the end good triumphed over evil after vandals struck the new Veterans Memorial Sunday night.
Five newly planted trees were snipped by vandals, with damages assessed at $1,500.
Project supporters gathered at the site Monday morning and could only wonder who and why someone would do such a thing.
Monies leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible went from $800 to $2,000 in a few days.
The board overseeing the project met Thursday and voted to have a security camera installed as well.
But it was the benevolent act of a Twin Cities company that helped to heal the wounds.
Bailey’s Nursery donated 15 crabapple trees with pink, white and red flowers to replace the five damaged trees.
Ely Flower and Seed transported the new trees back to town and will plant them.
The Ely Area Veterans Memorial is located at Miners Drive and Pioneer Road.

CLIMB Theater’s Feeling History visits Ely April 26; free VCC event

Feeling History is a deeply interactive performance that explores America’s history of racism and how it continues to shape the experience of Black Americans. In this theatrical history experience, audience members embark on a guided journey from slavery to today. Actors use monologues, scenes, slides, music, sound, and pointed interaction to help audiences intellectually and emotionally understand individual and institutional racism in a way that may well move them closer to each other and someday, perhaps, even to actions that will help end racism. 
Feeling History will be performed at the Vermilion Community College Gymnasium on Wednesday, April 26 at 6 p.m.  The performance is free and open to the public.  Funding is provided in part by the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Fernberg Road Work Resumes

Fernberg Road residents, visitors, and local businesses will encounter one-lane traffic across the Garden Lake bridge for the next four to six weeks as Redstone Construction finishes bridge repairs this spring.
This season’s work includes painting the bridge beams and railing to deter steel corrosion and extend the useful life of the new concrete bridge railing. Additionally, the Highway Department will begin brushing the ditches this week. This roadside maintenance will improve sign and mammal visibility along Fernberg Road between Garden Lake and Lake One.
Later this summer, Fall Lake Township will see Lake County’s first transportation sales tax-funded project as Scott Construction seals Fernberg Road between Garden Lake and Moose Lake Road. This pavement preservation project is expected to extend the serviceable life of the new blacktop. Motorists will encounter daytime lane closures during chip sealing operations.
